seal off nyc

They say New York City is the new Italy with cases doubling every 3 days. If I lived there I would be packing my bags and heading for Pa. We have blocked travel from Italy. Why aren't we sealing off NYC. There is limited access to NYC over bridges and tunnels so roadblocks would do the job. Only those with a negative test should leave.

Yeah, everyone is shaking their fists in anger at all to those who are still out and about and accusing them of “killing people” but a lot of those same people that live in the big cities are fleeing for the “hills” to possibly spread it there...

The heck with roadblocks, C4 would do a faster job. Blow all the bridges and Tunnels, but not before Cuomo and Shummer get there.

And when the riots break out in NYC and many othe cities in the U.S., what is the suggestion to deal with that? You really believe the U.S. soldier is going to follow a "shoot to kill" order on U.S. citizens?

How do you contain and feed millions of people?

People in general lost their minds when schools, pro sports, March Madness, and restaurants shut down? What do you think happens on an order like that? Mass hysteria. If people bought 300 rolls of TP when the bars closed, you'll have people committing suicide out of fear and depression.

There would be way more deaths of Americans than if we just let the virus go unchecked.

If we can prevent people dying, we should. For this, it means slow it down so we don't overload the hospitals.

If anyone thinks just let it go, people will develop imnunities and if it "thins the herd", well, that is nature's way. Be careful what you wish for, nature might decide it is you, your spouse, or your kid that needs thinned.

We all need to do our part and pull together, Americans helping Americans, not Americans isolating and sacrificing Americans. That is what made us different. This is a test to see if we still got it.

For a crazy watch and if you have Netflix, look up and watch "Containment". Only one season.

Kind of nuts and the pandemic in it is much more deadly but, it could happen with the next, more deadly pandemic that surfaces in the world. It is a TV show but, you seem a lot of the same things being touted in it, contact tracing, social distancing, etc., etc..............

That's interesting. You know, this could have been like that, a real high death rate per case, and so far its not. Maybe the next time something like this happens the world will respond faster and take it seriously and it will be contained. Maybe one good thing to come out of this.

China downplayed it from the beginning and assassinated anyone and everyone who reported the truth. The Chinese government and how they handled it initially is why the US/Italy/Spain are in the shape they are in.

Last night on FOX their China expert (Chan?) said that there is a second outbreak in Wuhan and they may impose a second quarantine. He was the only source for the info but if he was right we may need to rethink all we are doing because we are following their approach.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.
